This one, I didn't read. I got it narrated to me by a friend, who found the ending twist rather amusing. Maybe it isn't even a comic. Fleischer cartoon? George Reeves TV series? Well, anyway. The criminal gets Superman distracted somehow while he flees, and Superman eventually finds him just as he crossed the state border, so he can't be arrested anymore. The criminal gloats, and since he's a skilled gunslinger type, he throws a coin into the air and shoots a hole into it. Superman then flies past the border and grabs the criminal.
– Hey, you can't arrest me! I'm past the border!
– Destroying money is a federal crime. You're under arrest.
It was told to me circa 1990, but it could have been as far back as the 1940s. Of course, since it is a retelling, the dialogue was probably not exactly that.
